    I love the characters in this book Very quickly I wanted to see how they developed as they renewed their relationships I became so interested in the characters that I was nervous about the Ripper murders starting because I thought it might take away from their development Instead, the murders were like a small plot device to move along the story and bring it to a conclusion I don t feel that it necessarily had to be during the Jack the Ripper murders, although the author did seem to have the murders well researched Instead, I believe the book could have been placed almost anywhere as the story was character driven and the scenery was generally neglected, which is a shame for something set during the Jack the Ripper murders in the somewhere as atmospheric as Victorian London.The language did not always seem to reflect Victorian England, but behaviour seemed appropriate and well researched I wanted to read about Rowena and her troubles being a doctor in a male dominated field Honestly, I think I would have enjoyed the book a great deal if it had just been about her difficulty in gaining the respect of male doctors, gaining the trust of the prostitutes of London, and her relationship with Lord de Grey.Overall, I enjoy reading the history of the Jack the Ripper murders, and find that reinterpretations can often fall flat, especially when the murderer is found, but knew what I was in for for this one the title is a dead giveaway I enjoyed this book, not so much for the Ripper aspect, but for the characters, and would certainly pick up another book by this author.

    I have always found the Jack the Ripper case to be extremely interesting and intriguing so I was excited to win this book It was a great read, really fast paced Also, although the lead character is a female doctor in nineteenth century England, her character seems believable and the circumstances seem believable However, I did have a few flaws with the book First, I believe in my historical fiction being as accurate as is possible One character is the Duke of Albany He is seen as a friend and almost mentor to some of the characters and it is largely by his recommendation that Rowena the main character is allowed to work on the Ripper case However, a simple Google search would show that in 1888, the Duke of Albany was the 4 year old grandson of Queen Victoria Probably not the best person for the character I am sure there are plenty of other dukes in 1888 that would have made sense It seems to be an odd, out of place, unresearched bit Also, the ending was, to me, quite predicable Other than that, it was a good read.

    Pretty much paint by numbers here I kept reading only due to the main charactershe was the only thing interesting going on here in this rather hackneyed Jack the Ripper rip off still in all, I did finish the book which is a shame because the ending was rather predictable and uninspiring I m liberal thus 3 stars.
